Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This is the authentic Buffalo China that has been used in restaurants, hotels, diners, dining cars and many other establishments for decades. Buffalo China Company ( Buffalo Hotel Supply Company, Inc. ) was founded by J.D. Larkin in 1901. He began buying give away items from various manufacturers. He decided it made more sense for him to form his own companies to produce his premium give-aways to sell his soaps & toiletries. Additionally, the items produced were sold just like any other company wares. Buffalo China was considered an independent company but it was owned by J.D. Larkin. Some of the ' Premium-GiveAways' were furniture, buffets, chatauqua desks, food items, china, silver, piano lamps, towels, curtains, clocks, rugs, small appliances, jewelry, clothing, shoes, wallpaper, paint, and more. For $10 worth of soap products, you could receive a Chataugua desk! 'Larkin Secretaries' acted much like the Avon Ladies of today. The 'Larkin Secretaries' were encouraged to have a 'Larkin Home' meaning that their homes were furnished with furniture and belongings from Larkin's various companies. His idea was to have every home be a 'Larkin Home' . Buffalo China has always been known for its quality and durability. It has been produced for restaurants, hotels, individual home use, china for children, and much more. Buffalo China is a part of our American history as well as the history of china and restaurant ware.
